Hello, welcome to Just Answer.

You can follow this with the consumer price index of Bureau of Labor and Statistic:

They have August to December there:

The month of January will be published the 17 February (personally i did not experienced much variation for this month, perhaps even a decrease).

You can also check the FAO:

They released today the [December,January] data. It's up 2% for the month. This is for commodity and in the whole world, depending of added value of final transformation and promotion at retail, those numbers can differ from the BLS numbers.
